North Sea Weather - Mission Statement


 With thirty years of experience of Marine Weather Forecasting in the North Sea and adjacent waters, I have experienced the frontier days of both that of Long Range weather forecasting and the Offshore Oil industry. Seeing both grow and mature as modern day computing and communications have revolutionised both the Offshore Oil Industry and Weather Forecasting. Gone are the days when forecasts were received offshore via a SITOR Telex link to Wick or Stonehaven radio, taking ages to come in and very often ancient history by the time they were typed out. Modern day KUBAND and the Internet have made the communication of weather forecast data to the Offshore Industry decision makers fast and effective. understands that a weather forecast is a perishable commodity. Our forecasts are refreshed every 6 hours then processed and delivered within 1 hour. You are usually expected to wait between 6 to 9 hours for a forecast to be processed from the the same model data and delivered. By the time this half rotten forecast arrives in your email box NorthSeaWeather will have already issued a fresh forecast from the next model run for you to view online at your convenience. You are not restricted to one area either, subscribers can access any of our area forecasts in the North Sea, Norwegian Sea or offshore Angola.


Subscribers have access to all our Area Forecasts across the North Sea, English Channel and waters west of Scotland, as well as the Oil Exploration Areas of the Haltenbanken and Barents Sea and the waters off Nigeria and Angola. A single user 365 day access account costs as little as 27p a day. Subscribers range from Fishermen and Marine Consultants to ferry operators & operators of DSV's and Survey vessels and Oil Companies.
